    Young Centerfielder Having MVP Season

    Amazing numbers, for a CF'er:

    28 Homers
    86 RBI's
    .564 slugging
    .927 OPS
    9 Triples
    21 Steals

    Way above his career averages, and smart fans, few as they may be, know career averages will recapture what amounts to one hot tournament run.

    Re: Young Centerfielder Having MVP Season

    You are the one who needs to save face. Granderson is having a career MVP season, Ellsbury is not. And one game or even one season does not make a career and a "superstar".

    You are intoxicated after that cryer down the pesky pole line. Key hits were Crawford and Scutaro, .280's OPB for Crawford and all. Game was already depressurized by groupies get drunk Ellsbury hysteria.

    I disdain McCarver, but his comment "more homers in one season than an entire career" seem to put it in perspective. Agon's addition is the unseen difference maker, in his own numbers and those in front of him. Ellsbury in San Diego numbers would be nice to see.

    Agon is not popular in Boston, to the point of being disrespected by this silly "MVP season for Ells" nonsense.

    You are such a fool!  The Pesky pole is 302 and the field quickly moves out to 380, which is where the home run went.  Not that it matters.  it was a huge hit at the time because it gave the Sox a cushion in case Lackey struggled, which he did.  If he didn't get the DP turned, the Yanks could have had a big inning.  For you to minimize clutch hits like that just because you don't like the guy is a "you" problem, not an Ellsbury problem.  You minimized his previous bit hits by saying he had to do it over the weekend against the Yanks and CC.  Now that he has, you say the HR was cheap.  No HR is cheap vs. CC.  You have ZERO credibility.

    Obsess much Softie?  Give it up man, it may appear Ells may be playing over his head and yup, may be having a career season.  But guess what - maybe it's the "start" of something and not a statistical "wierd" year like the one Brady Anderson had back in the day.  Besides, even if Ells doesn't reach these numbers again, but attains about 2/3rd's of them - he'd still be better than any other option for us in CF.  So why don't you try to save what little credibility you have on this board and select another "windmill" to tilt at.  Because the Ellsbury windmill is kicking your you-know-what.

    Any suggestions that Ellsbury's homer yesterday was a cheap one are absurd.  Teixeira's blast off Bard was even 'closer to the Pesky pole' and not cheap either.

    Granderson is having a career year as well and so is Adrian if you base it solely on a year where the player is playing above his averages and any other year in his career.
    Ells has 3 complete years and 2 incomplete
    Ells career ave is 298 and he is only 23 points over that.
    The issue is power and will he keep that up.

    ellsbury is doing this damage in the leadoff spot, wich is why his numbers are so impressive and why he is mentioned in the mvp race, lets not forget his ability to swipe bases, look at his avg/hr/r/rbi/sb/ops etc batting leadoff.

    Softy neglects to mention that Granderson hits in that bandbox right field with the wind tunnel effect called Yankee Stadium....Most of Jake's bombs have been into the bullpen or over it.....Let's face it, Softy is a Yankee fan.

    I never said anything of the kind. I don't make comments about what a player "must do over a weekend".

    Paranoid, you are.

    No, you can't run from those numbers. Bias and bigotry is bad character. Granderson is a first class guy, like Jeter. I disdain the Yankee way, but not all of the players. Granderson is the class in AL CF, by far.

    Hey Jim,
    Ellsbury's career path is following the same arc as Damon's. Prototypical leadoff hitters with speed that used the whole field with an inside out stroke trying to hit the inside of the ball and go the other way both after breaking in struggled to turn on the ball on the inner half and pitchers pounded them in on thier hands, challenged them in the strike zone, both made the adjustment, learned to turn on the ball on the inner half and drive it to right. Thus the spike in both thier power and OBP numbers starting in years 3-5...Ellsbury's not going to be a 40 homer guy, but he can and will be a consistent 15-20 homer guy from here on, he's always had very good bat speed, which is where his power comes from and it's not likely to go away anytime soon.

    Errors reflect aggressive v. passive. Granderson plays shallow, Ellsbury plays middle aged softball league deep. Kind of like Vlads "single" in game 3 of 2009 ALDS.

    Devils advocate isn't needed for Granderson numbers. He was AS and top AL CF'er 2011 season based on numbers.

    In the 11 head-to-head matchups between the Red Sox and Yankees this year Ellsbury has been far superior.

    Ellsbury .381 7 extra-base hits 13 RBI
    Granderson .233 4 extra-base hits 8 RBI
